This event aims at moving discussions from identification of principles to implementation of practices on how stakeholders from the Americas Region can ensure that accessible ICTs and assistive technologies are widely available to persons with disabilities (PwD) and can be used to safeguard and exercise their rights, considering equality and affordability. This event will further focus on the importance of ICTs to empower PwD emphasizing that through cooperation, development of tools, capacity building and the development of policies and strategies it is possible to remove barriers and enable human development and social inclusion.
